Big survey – Richard is the happiest electric car owner

Most electric car owners are very happy with their cars. The Norwegian Electric Car Association has asked over 15,000 members how satisfied they are with their cars.

As many as 94 per cent answer that they are “very satisfied” or “satisfied”. Only three percent are “dissatisfied” or “very dissatisfied.”

And the most satisfied, 97 percent, drive the Tesla Model 3. On the same score in total, but with a slightly lower score for “very satisfied”, come those who drive the Kia e-Niro, Tesla Model X and BMW i3.

Technology and range

Richard Atleen is thus one of the Tesla owners in the survey who is very happy with his Model 3. He tells why the choice fell on this particular car:

– Tesla’s technology, charging network, range and the fact that you get a nimble car with good driving characteristics at a low price, were decisive. I had been dreaming of Tesla for a while, but the Model S was too expensive. I followed Model 3, but waited a year to buy the car to avoid any childhood diseases, says Alten to elbil.no.

He has now had the car for a year and a half without any problems. He highlights Tesla’s charging network as extra positive:

No range anxiety

– We drove 2,000 kilometers on Norwegian holidays last year and did not feel a single time of range anxiety. We experienced no charging queue, except for one place, where two chargers were out of order. We were told about that in the car, so we were prepared. We waited for ten minutes. I’m still looking forward to taking a ride in this car, says Atleen, who adds:

– It is possible that you see a little through the fingers with some things. The auto functions on the window cleaners seem to be the first generation from the 80’s and the paint is bad, especially at the wheel arches. I’m going to stop by Tesla to hear what they think about the case, but this is probably according to the Tesla standard, I’m afraid.

Happy Kia owners

Even Sandvold Roland is senior communications manager for Tesla in Norway and Iceland and is of course very pleased with the results of the customer survey.

– Model 3 is designed to be an affordable and simple family car and it is getting better through wireless software updates. Now our Supercharger network covers Norway lengthwise, and we have invested heavily in our service capacity in Norway in recent years. We do not spend money on advertising and live off satisfied customers who will recommend us further.

On the top ten list of the most satisfied electric car owners, we also find Kia with the models e-Niro and Soul Electric. Both cars have been on the market for a long time and have proven to be very energy efficient even in winter. Owners of Polestar 2, Hyundai Kona, Mercedes EQC and Jaguar i-Pace are also on the top ten list of the most satisfied electric car customers.
